Indian connection at the Oscars this year – “Life of Pi” and “Lincoln”

Indian connection at the Oscars this year – “Life of Pi” and “Lincoln” January 10, 2013

This year there will be multiple ways that India will be represented at the Academy Awards ceremony.  There are 9 nominees for the Best Picture:

  • Civil War saga “Lincoln”;
  •  the old-age love story “Amour”;
  • the Iran hostage thriller “Argo”;
  • the independent hit “Beasts of the Southern Wild”;
  • the slave-revenge narrative “Django Unchained”;
  • the musical “Les Miserables”;
  • the shipwreck story “Life of Pi”;
  • the lost-souls romance “Silver Linings Playbook”;
  • and the Osama bin Laden manhunt chronicle “Zero Dark Thirty.”

While “Life of Pi” is the story of the journey of an Indian boy; Lincoln has an interesting connection.  It is produced by Steven Spielberg, Kathleen Kennedy and Reliance.  Reliance is the company owned by Anil Ambani.  They have an alliance with Steven Spielberg, so it is not surprising that they are in there in Lincoln.

Lincoln, btw, has 12 nominations, which is a record for any movie until now.
